#1 The First thing you need to do is contact your
"State Daycare Licensing Agency".

They will put you in touch with your local county agency. Usually they will send you a packet of information with application, regulations and other steps needed in getting your license needed.

Not all states require you to be licensed, some just require you to be registered depending on how many children you will be caring for. Many states do require you to be licesened if caring for 5 or less children but still may require you to be at least registered.

Regulations differ from state to state and regulations are also different for home daycares than for daycare centers.

For state by state daycare regulations go here:

When applying for your license or registration, you may need to meet, but is not limited to, the following requirements:
* Complete the application process.
* Submit your licensing fees.
* Attend to possible physical changes needed on your house to pass a safety inspection.
* Complete required training, including Early Childhood Education courses, CPR and First Aid.
* Have an up-to-date physical on record.
* Provide background checks on everyone living in your household or substitute providers you plan on using.
* Arrange for a premise inspection by a fire marshall and county official.
* There are different types of licenses to apply for depending on how many and what ages of children you are planning on caring for.

If you need licensing information go to our state listings page and select a state you will find state contact information. Or go here:
